Acerca de nuestra casa

PLEASE NOTE: BECAUSE JAPAN OFFERS VERY FEW CHOICES TO EXCHANGERS WE RECEIVE AN OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF REQUESTS EACH WEEK. SO WE WILL ONLY BE REPLYING TO THOSE REQUESTS THAT REALLY INTEREST US. SORRY ABOUT THAT.

THE DELICATE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE ROOM IS ALSO NOT SUITABLE FOR VERY YOUNG CHILDREN.

We are probably in one of the best locations you could wish for if you want to see Tokyo and experience the culture. And handy for trains that serve all Tokyo. Most sites are just 10 minutes away. Time Out has a guide to our area known as Kagurazaka (where the gods come to play) : http://www.timeout.com/tokyo/things-to-do/kagurazaka-area-guide

A two-story, wooden, family house set on top historic Waradana hill overlooking the whole city. Wooden flooring throughout decorated in western style, sofa, etc, but also added attraction of a traditional Japanese living/bedroom. Rather shabby in some areas but decoration and renovation nearly complete. I recently took over the house from my father and am starting to redecorate/renovate. PLEASE NOTE. The Japanese traditional room has just been totally renovated which means, I'm afraid, no children over one and under 12 allowed in there. It is the second bedroom, so bear in mind please before requesting a swap.

Total floor area: 114 sqm

Very posh neighbourhood and extraordinarily intimate, village-like and quiete for such a big, bustling city. What is really a small residential area with low-rise houses and apartments in the middle of the biggest city in the world. It's an historic area where Edo's first castle was built and we are just outside the walls of the present Tokyo Emperor's palace. You will be right at the centre of all of it but protected from the traffic and crowds here.

Close to all the famous spots and served by about 6 train lines nearby. Delightful shopping/dining street 2 minutes walk away. One the best in Japan and has many festivals -- Matsuri -- the greatest of all at end of July http://www.timeout.jp/en/tokyo/event/11764/Kagurazaka-Matsuri-2014. The village is called Kagurazaka. Known as Little Kyoto in Tokyo we have geisha on the doorstep, historic dining inns and charming cobblestoned alleyways and courtyards to enjoy.

Quite a lot of space inside the house compared to typical Japanese homes but still rather tiny compared to homes in the USA for example. But the house is comfortable. The three upstairs rooms are small.

Traditional Japanese bathroom BTW and a delightful Japanese traditional tatatami mat room which doubles as a second bedroom with futons downstairs. Three rooms upstairs ... one is a bedroom. Double bed for 2 and futons downstairs for another 2, means we can accommodate four comfortably. And upstairs another small, very comfortable 2nd lounge with lots of light. The third room is used as an office/storeroom.

Why Tokyo? According to a survey of over 54,000 travelers conducted by Internet travel site TripAdvisor, Tokyo beat out New York and Barcelona as the city with “the best overall experience.”

Please note: older children are welcome, but owing to the delicacy of the paper-screened, traditional tatami room, we are unable to accommodate smaller children under 13 and over one year old.
